The location is everything with this particular restaurant and worth a visit. The food and service are average but overall a good place.

Dock of the Bay is a seasonal restaurant and we enjoyed an amazing lunch on their last day. The view was spectacular, the food delicious and the service incredible!! We were never wanting for anything. I would have rated a full 5 star however, I found the portions a little lacking. The house kettle chips with my philly cheese steak... More

My husband and I enjoyed a second lunch there recently. We love patio on the water and the nachos with the house BBQ sauce, so yummy! We shared that and one of the lunch specials, Blackened Mahi tacos which had small fish portions with a dusting of some kind of BBQ rub of sorts. They were different but good enough... More

It was the perfect day out, so we were looking for a place to eat by the water. Someone recommended Dock of the Bay. While it did have a view of the water, the ambiance on the deck left a little to be desired, and it wasn't the greatest view. But the food was really good. I ordered the beer... More

My wife and I and two other couple had lunch there twice.First time hors d'oeuvres. The second time we had a full lunch the pulled pork was absolutely wonderful the prime rib sandwich was great and the atmosphere at the dock nothing could be better will be back!

This was a nice place to eat, drink a beer, and watch the boats come in and out. Very relaxed feeling. Our waitress lacked in personality, however food was delicious. I would recommend the BBQ Quesadilla.

Had a party of 10. Was told 20 minutes wait. 1 hour later, after other large parties were seated ahead of us, host told me he never said 20 mins. Needless to say we left and went to another restaurant and only waited 5 minutes. Will never go here again!

We waited in line for 45 minutes after giving them out name and the number in our party. We decided to check after 45 minutes and then saw people in large groups being seated that arrived after us. They told us that they did not have our name and our would be another 45 minutes wait.

I love onion rings and Coleman's were delicious and worth the calories! We also had the pulled pork quesadilla which was packed with pork and very flavorful. Shawna was our waitress and was very sweet and provided great service!
